Possible broken link: Checksums

Kjell Andersson

I found this challenge, MD5 sums don’t match.

Source file

openssl dgst -md5 Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.5_MacOS_x86-64_install_sv.dmg
MD5(Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.5_MacOS_x86-64_install_sv.dmg)= d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e

MD5 check-sum file
6de73527d6f426f41b142a915e8afaba *Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.5_MacOS_x86-64_install_sv.dmg

Enquiries such as this are probably best sent to the Users list, not
the Development one, in the first instance. The first step is to have
your difficulty confirmed.

I've just tested this, downloading both dmg and md5 files from
www.openoffice.org/download/ . The MD5 checksum of the dmg file,
derived using Microsoft's File Checksum Integrity Verifier (version
2.05), matches the 6de... value you correctly quote from the md5
file. So either your download of the dmg file has indeed been
corrupted - perhaps cut short? - or else your extraction of its MD5
hash was faulty.
